My first paid jobs were posed newborn photo shoots. Quickly I realized that making photos of the moments which are normally not being photographed are much more beautiful than the posed ones. Like hugging the baby when a bit sad, when struggling with the tiny buttons to dress the baby or just the quick kiss by the brother or sister. All kinds of moments when you really capture emotions and thats what I am enjoying a lot. 4 years ago I became mother for the first time and photos are far more valuable to me than before. So many funny, unexpected, cozy and definitely ‘frustrating’ family moments, which are every day different. I really enjoy having my oldest son around (4 years) when he comes of the toilet, while pulling up his pants up to to his armpits…. Or my youngest son (2 years) trying to put a sandwich at once in his mouth. These kind of moments have made my decision to specialise in documentary family photography incorporating Day In My Life Photography.
During a photo report, everything revolves around you or you. Who I am is not important; I am present but also not. I put you at ease and listen to your wishes. As soon as I put down my camera I am Sandra, born in 1973 and a photographer. Crazy about traveling, sports, music, reading and going out. A real summer and evening person who enjoys life. But I prefer to have my camera, a Canon, around my neck to do what I love the most: photography. After the basic training at the Fotovakschool in Amsterdam, I continued with the training to become a professional photographer. A very nice education that I enjoyed and completed alongside my full-time job. After that, I followed various training courses, when I felt more and more which way I wanted to go with my photography.
My name is Miranda van Assema, 37 years old and together with Marcel I live in Medemblik. Through the Graphic profession, I came into contact with photography, in which I found my passion. The best thing about photography is to capture memories for life! My camera therefore rarely deviates from my side. I do not like posed pictures, but rather of real moments and real situations, just as it is. My style can be described as spontaneous, pure, unforced and journalistic. What I really enjoy is the small moments of happiness every day. In our daily hectic we sometimes forget it, but it is precisely in those little things that our happiness lies. Capturing these moments is the best thing I do.
Jacqueline Dersjant (PHTGRPHR) is an international award winning photojournalist known for her candid, documentary approach to family photography. Jacqueline’s expressive photography is about capturing special moments and emotions between people. Her reportage style is up close with a great sense of humor. She is committed to capturing the reality and has an eye for spontaneous, once in a lifetime moments that feel honest.
Our greatest wealth (Dennis) was born in 2016. It's great to watch him grow up and the best sound is his burst of laughter! Yes, literally all clichés are true (fair is fair, even the less fun)! Since we have our dog Floora Dennis seems to flourish even more and it is really beautiful to see the two together. I am secretly quite a house sparrow. We have the luxury that we live wonderfully outside on a farm (arable farming) and I can, therefore, be found in and around the house. Floora is a real working dog and once a week I am going to drive her sheep. That is really my way of discharging and getting new energy and inspiration. It's the little things in life that I love so much. Since those little things can actually be very big. That is why it has become my passion to capture moments in life. Whether this is a wedding, birth or just a normal day "taken from life". No posing and looking in the camera, but real life. Pure - Narrative - Real and also a bit raw.
Photography and people are Joshua’s two greatest passions. Utterly curious – a nice legacy she got from her grandmother – she loves to meet new people, observe them and capture what they are all about. She is both outgoing and calm so to make everyone feel at ease. Very patient, she has a special radar for shenanigans. Her goal is to document small but great moments that might otherwise go unnoticed, to capture the moment just as it felt that day. She is a visual storyteller. Mostly self-taught, she has been a professional photographer for the last 11 years, full time since 2013. She is based in Antwerp, Belgium, and travels in (and sometimes out) Europe for Family, Day in the Life sessions and Weddings. She is at her best when shooting true, unstaged and profound moments and events – in a relaxed atmosphere.
I cannot say exactly where my passion for photography originated. For me, photos are valuable because of the memories they carry and the stories they can tell. My father used to have a darkroom in the attic, a mysterious place where my sister and I were not allowed to just come. But because of this darkroom and my father's hobby, I am lucky that there are entire albums full of photos with stories from my childhood. Besides the memories, I also have photos that belong to these memories. A precious possession, if you ask me. In the spring of 2019, I decided to change course. I felt I was just working and when I came home in the evening I had little energy left for other things. More balance was needed. In addition, I wanted to do more with my passion, photography. In recent years I have followed various photography courses and workshops. Also, I followed a part-time course in Photo Art at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts Antwerp for 3 years. But now it was time to move on. I started to work less and to focus more on photography. That gives me energy, I can use my creativity and I can touch people in a positive way with that!
Friends tell me I am a man with many hobbies. "You do everything, don't you?" Well, I can't deny that. I have a curious mind and I try a lot of different things and some things stick with me. That's how I started skateboarding, (wind)surfing, riding a motorcycle, learned to fix this motorcycle, and rebuild an old moped. Broadening my mind and learning different skills is what gives me energy. However varied these hobbies might seem, what I experience by mastering new skills is the rough, pure, and real sense of life. Jumping off a curb with your skateboard has something pure. No focus and you will fall, too tense and you will fall, a foggy head, and you will fall. This means there has to be some kind of balance between focus and relaxation. Unimportant elements of the day will disappear into the background and you only live this very moment, and that is 'real'. With my photography, I am looking for these pure and real moments. When I take pictures, I capture life how it is and goes. This means that in a family shoot everyone is allowed to decide for themselves what they wear that day, or how tidy the house is. Life consists of so many things that have to be done, that are supposed to be or that are not allowed. Leave it! Let it flow, it doesn't matter, beautiful moments arise everywhere, I'll capture them.
We are also a family. Therefore, we know how important it is to have memories and to keep them, despite how quickly time passes. One day we wanted to photograph happiness, and we asked ourselves, where is it? At that moment we realized something that we had not been able to see. We were able to understand that happiness does not come from trips or specific things we can do, from an event or a celebration, but that real happiness is with us every day, in the routine of our life, of our home, together with the people we love the most: in games, in the bedtime story, in the afternoons lying on the couch watching a movie and eating popcorn, on walks to the park ...
Hi, my name is Gaby and I live with my family, consisting of my husband Rick and daughter Dani in Woudrichem. I have been in the fortunate position to turn my hobby into my profession. Although I own not one but two of my own studios and sometimes divert to other disciplines within photography. I love to photograph my dear customers beautiful, pure, and creative. I am affiliated with various international wedding photography networks. And I can now call myself the winner of various international photo awards at international photo competitions. What makes me even more motivated to capture you beautifully on film. Female teacher? Besides my wedding reports and other photography work I also teach. I give workshops (bridal workshops, studio workshops) and courses (basic course and follow-up courses). I think teaching is one of the most wonderful things to do. Going through their creative and technical process together with people. Because don't forget, photography is 50% technique & 50% creativity. And the latter comes from within. I also enter the mentoring process with fellow photographers. Instead of training, I give them lessons in which the techniques, equipment, and creativity are high. Photo criticisms are therefore not lacking in these creative processes. I will tell you what is or is not technically possible and which lenses you may need for which form of photography. Workshops are available in groups and you can certainly book privately.
